Hello All,

Here is a sad story from a fellow brewer. Quite an interesting read. I dont know the man, but I wish him well in his brewing endeavours.

Hopefully brewing can bring him a little happiness before the terrible disease slowly takes his life away

Apologies for the sadness, but its a story worth sharing.

I'll be buying a carton. No matter what the cost is.

I just lost my grandfather yesterday, Its still not clear how or what took him but MND did come up as a possibility. Seeing this on here this morning makes me think he's up there making sure that i know he's looking after me. :icon_cheers:

The fellow in the article is a friend of a friend, and by all accounts a stand up individual.

I don't know if the beer will make it to melbourne, but I'll certainly be buying some if I come across it.
